A Tag Pad Share

Happy Tuesday to ALL!  I guess it is Tuesday, correct?  Time flies when your having fun! 

I was in our local craft store last week and came across these Tag Pads:  they were 12 designs, 2 sheets per design for $1.25 (I did have a coupon).  I stopped to check them out and was impressed with the designed paper inside each pad.  It’s one of those pads that was full of tags that you would attached to a present with your TO: and FROM:, only the TO and FROM was not printed on them.

I bought a pack and went to work – take a look what you can make for just pennies ~

Now if I really wanted to get into it, I could have added a gold leaf pen on the outside edge of the top layer instead of the ‘really rust’ card stock or just used Brushed Gold card stock all together.  But keeping costs down, I was happy with this one.

Ooooops, did you notice, no background card stock, just a glimpse at what it would look like if you did not use a color background at all.  Still looks nice. 

It may be hard to pick up but I did do a little fussy cutting and if you look hard the pink flower on the left was cut out (using the second sheet of this same design) and popped up with dimensionals.  You might get a better look here ~

But you certainly don’t have to do that much, you probably couldn’t tell that I did it until I pointed it out to you.  The tags already had scalloped edges and a hole to run my ribbon through, I just added a heat embossed sentiment. 

Here’s another….I was on a roll – they took NO TIME to make

And that’s my tag share for today.  So if you are ever in a hurry or got caught short at the last minute, here’s a way out.

As always, thank you for stopping by today, I sincerely hope your day is a good one and I hope to see you tomorrow!

These are lovely, Linda. I think I got gypped.....the ones I bought do not have the scallops all the way to the edge; bummer! They're still pretty and I can't wait to use them for something!!!
